Thanks to Barclays’ sponsorship of Teach For America, hundreds of New York City public school teachers attended a special performance of the sold-out Broadway musical Hamilton.

The teachers, selected by Teach For America in partnership with the New York City Department of Education, joined Barclays and its clients to watch the sold-out production, which won 11 Tony Awards last year.

The Hamilton performance is the centerpiece of a professional development program created by Teach For America – New York to support teachers who lead diverse classrooms.

The program is made possible through a partnership with Barclays as part of our commitment to supporting innovation, diversity and preparing the next generation for the jobs of tomorrow.

How do you inspire others to achieve their dreams?

Barclays’ colleagues working in New York had a special opportunity to win one of 30 tickets to the performance by answering the question, “How do you inspire others to achieve their dreams?” Over 320 colleagues submitted their inspirational stories for consideration, including Carolina Barraza, a software engineer with Global Technology, who immigrated to the US from Mexico and paid her way through college by coding.

I was very excited to win a ticket. Seeing on stage the story of how an immigrant like Alexander Hamilton can make a difference in this country was very inspiring.

Prior to the performance, Barclays hosted a reception featuring a panel discussion with stars and the associate director of Hamilton. The reception included remarks by Carmen Fariña, Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, and a special performance by Broadway For All, a non-profit organisation that trains young performers from diverse backgrounds.
